    just calling him names is not a reason !
    (he is anything but by the way)

    I recall seeing him as a teenager at Queen's Club (the old Stella Artois tournament) falling over because he had really bad cramp in his legs, skinny scrawny lad with an untidy mop of curly hair

    got loads of photos somewhere from that day I'll try to find & upload a few later but I never imagined back then that he would hit the top spot & be a multiple grand slam winner...I'm still in shock that he's actually done it

    He hates England and just in general looks like he's been sucking lemons. Personality of a door stop.

    we have a british number one and we should be proud

    So he lives in London, because he hates in England, get a grip.

    He said "anyone but England" talking about football in a private conversation with Henman.

    Are you talking about Wayne Rooney?

    British when he wins. Scottish when he looses.

    I'm Scottish I don't support England in Football either. I don't hate English people.

    Mr. SB has his spoon out and strikes again lol

    He makes me soooo angry but yet I like him

    Edit - didn't really think he would do all his done but hats off and well done, fully deserving.


    He hasn't really done it, it's no achievement to win by default. The only reason he is number 1 is because two of his peers withdrew from the tournament giving him the title. His arrogance at claiming a default as his greatest achievement shows how big a nob he truly is.

    There's a very distasteful aspect of British culture where we like to denigrate people's achievements or punish people for being successful. It happens in all walks of life but is most obvious in things like sports or entertainment.

    It's the old build people up and knock them down thing.

    Andy Murray has reached the pinnacle of what it is that he does. How many British people throughout history can say that?

    It's a remarkable achievement and I have the utmost respect and admiration for him.

    Yes, very good English and Welsh deals. Except as per usual your argument falls short of delivering facts. People don't dislike him for getting to the top of his sport. Quite the contrary. I think it's an incredible achievement.

    Im not impressed with him for his comments which were obviously emphasised once more from him and calls for independence. Of course he is quite entitled to those viewpoints, but then you need to accept people are entitled to their views on him.

    I can't say I'm too upset in respect of those comments and opinions, but I will say I find him a fairly characterless individual. I don't hate him, but I don't like him. Nothing to do with him being Scottish, just very boring.

    BTW you seem to be shy of your usual like per post. Have you had a tiff?

    So many silly posts in one thread. Hard to identify the most nonsensical.

    This may even beat MSB's ridiculous views. Andy Murray has established himself at the top of a highly competitive sport, and in a particularly great era. Reaching Number 1 is the result of him proving to be the very best over the last 2 years - not just one tournament.

    Deserves all that life has to offer, both in his tennis career and beyond. An amazing role model.

    yay well done Andy. He is himself and doesn't pander to anyone.
    He is a hero for just getting on the court after almost getting caught in the dunblane massacre..

    Big fan of his. People may want to hate him but well done on your Number 1 and soon to be
    Sports Personality of the year 2016.

    So you don't support a fellow team in the UK just because of it's name ?

    Ive always been curious about that also. Is it an inferiority complex? Ive always regarded the union as equal even though obviously the English contribute much more. The only time I would not want Scotland to win at football is when they play England and then probably Wales and North Ireland. (Purely as an underdog thing, but that probably needs to be revised now!)

    It's just odd, most Scots support England in cricket and who do they support at the olympics?

    England was the Auld enemy for Scotland and that's translated into sport. Plus England are like the Manchester United of the UK.

    It's also fun and just a bit of banter to rib your English friends over something like their performance in the World Cup.
    Especially with England and their medias confidence of winning the world cup in the past.
